“A Try at the Garden of Eden”



Eden Try Estate is an impressive 12 acre Estate conveniently located mid-way between Washington DC and Richmond on the I-95 corridor. Beautiful garden Estate was featured on the Virginia Garden tour and recently recognized by two major publications as the top 10 Virginia wedding venues... and for a reason. Eden Try Estate also now offers a gorgeous new vineyard barn!

See website www.EdenTryEvents.com for details.

Close to hotels, dining, and Fredericksburg's historic district. Private tours of the Estate and wine tastings of our private labeled wines offered by appointment.

An architecturally stunning Manor House entrance with 700’ winding drive befitting a horse and carriage arrival.

12 magnificent acres of estate grounds, formal gardens, manicured lawns, and cascading fountains create a uniquely romantic backdrop for your event that will impress your guests. As a testiment to its natural beauty, Eden Try was honored to be selected as a featured property on the prestigious Virginia Garden Tour.

The Estate is reserved exclusively for one event at a time so you don’t have to share your personal celebration with anyone else on your special day. Ten hour packages available so you have to the luxury of relaxing and enjoying the fantasy event you’ve dreamed of your whole life.

Great location for the convenience of your guests! Less than four miles from hotels, restaurants, and major shopping. Only six miles from Interstate I-95 and Fredericksburg, Virginia’s, historic district.

Among the estate’s 12 acres, there are endless possibilities for creating a dramatic and memorable event that reflects your personal style. For your wedding or special event, you may choose the formal front entry and gardens with impressive winding drive, rear bluestone terrace with signature tiered rose gardens or beyond with acres of manicured lawns, ancient tree lines, and a natural amphitheatre and wedding pergola toward the rear of the property. The estate is flanked by nearly one hundred private acres for the ultimate escape to another place in time yet it is less than four miles from your choice of modern upscale amenities. Read less

This was the perfect location for us to have our wedding. We wanted it on a Saturday, have the ceremony outside and the reception instead. We ended up having it on a Saturday with both reception and ceremony inside. We had been told of the backup plan should it rain on the wedding and I was able to hide in the bathroom while guests were sitting instead at their tables for dinner. I was able to walk under the covered porch and entered from the front entrance to walk down the aisle. It was so imitate and perfect. Linda and Gary were fast to respond to all our emails. Sat with us during our complimentary wine tasting. It was a great value for sure and it included everything in the contract. Our only comment and the reason they did not get a 5.0/5.0 is that at the beginning of the planning we were told that there could be a Friday night wedding meaning we would have to have the rehearsal earlier in the day of Friday (noon) or earlier in the week, like Thursday. What ended up happening, is they scheduled a Friday afternoon wedding. In the contract it states they have 15 days prior to the wedding to decide when they could offer the rehearsal, which did not seem like a big deal at first but we had 25 people in our wedding party, all out of town & had to ask off of work a month in advance, it was very frustrating to be told we could not have the rehearsal Friday afternoon/evening at Eden Try, like we planned, three weeks before the wedding. We were offered Thursday or Friday AM on site, which again being out of town, our wedding party out of town & not being able to take off work, it was not acceptable. We ended up having to have our rehearsal off-site thanks to my event planner who helped us gain access to one three weeks before the wedding. It was a very stressful time. I think this is a great location and they were great to work with overall. I just wish we could have it in the contract that we needed a month's notice, but I understand it is a business they are running.

I would absolutely discourage others from using Eden Try as their event site. I really wish I would have read the other reviews on The Knot prior to booking our wedding at this site...sounds like they had the same problems we did with the owner and manager (Gary and Linda) as well issues with their deposit. Yes, the barn and site are pretty. However, the poor management and lack of professionalism from the owners and staff of Eden Try are not worth the stress and inconvenience. Linda is generally unresponsive and was inconsistent with the information provided. We were told a lot of things during our initial meetings and conversations regarding wedding planning...and much of that changed as we got closer to the wedding. We were told we would have a private wine tasting and were later told it had to be scheduled at a specific time and was not private. For our rehearsal and wedding, the ceremony grounds and equipment were not maintained as they should be for an event site (grass not mowed, leaves not raked, chairs for the wedding were dirty). After our wedding, we contacted Linda to find out why our deposit had not been deposited and when it would be returned; however, we did not hear back. Instead, our deposit was cashed over a week AFTER the wedding. When we inquired about why it was not returned and just being cashed, Gary provided no information over the phone about it. Instead, we were emailed a couple hours after the phone conversation (2 WEEKS AFTER our wedding) that there had been damage to a spigot on the property and we would be responsible for paying and that our deposit was being withheld because of it. When they finally responded to our phone calls, Gary told my husband that they had pointed the damaged spigot out to one of our guests the day after the wedding. Totally unprofessional that they didn't notify us. He had no proof that this occurred at our wedding. Overall, they were exceptionally unprofessional in how they handled the situation.

I fell in love with this venue the first time I visited it. Gary and Linda were a pleasure to work with and they just want your day to be the absolute best! The reason I put flexibility a little lower is because it is their home so its understandable that you can't stop by whenever you would like but they are extremely eager to work out a time for you to come by. I couldn't have been happier at any other venue! Would highly recommend this place!

The owners were nice and pleasant. Very beautiful setting, which helped us from having to buy flowers (major savings) besides our bouquets. I wish for what we paid for we had 9 hours instead of 6 total bc it was hard to have everything set up w/in an hour and half time frame before the ceremony, but the owners were flexible and gave us more time, which helped a lot.
